Windows July Updates 2008
Has anyone had any problems with these?
I have just tried them on Windows XP SP3 and Windows 2000 SP4.
I cannot connect to the internet afterwards. I get to my ISP and ping seems to work, but trying to browse a website justs brings a timeout and "unable to connect to server" message.
The answer seems to be that KB951748 doesn't play nice with ZoneAlarm

Installed the updates overnight and this morning i had no connections.
Had to remove the update to get online.
I use Zonealarm so what is the work - around this.?

Johnno i believe one of the updates that is causing this issue is due to this..

Sorry I was a bit sparse with that post but I ran the update (XP) and hit problems, messed around with LSPfix and the like and no joy, so I cut across to a Win 2000 box and hit the same thing. I tried to get the warning in to AO as soon as possible whilst I was looking into it.
InfoAU, right now I have uninstalled KB951748, but that cannot be a solution for more than a few days.
My only complaint is that MS obviously didn't test with ZA. That is surprising, because it is very popular?

I guess we will have to wait and see if there is another update.

Well, you can now get the updated ZoneAlarm that works. 70_483_000. I have only tried it on Windows XP SP3 so far but will do Win 2000 in a minute.
It isn't an issue with Vista because Microsoft documented Kernel level hooking for that OS.
And here is a link specially for Info_Au (based on his avatar)
The fix works on Windows 2000 as well.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
